Blogging for NASN today

Check out my post on the NASN website today about School Nurses and Social Media.

Special thanks to Jessica Porter (@porter_primada), for organizing the #NASN2014 Nurse tweeters and contributing to today’s post. And here’s a link to her great blog Go Ask the Nurse.

What a wonderful experience, both personally and professionally! I will post more in the days to come, but I can’t say enough great things about my first NASN conference.

My school District sent a large group of Nurses to the conference, and we had a wonderful time connecting with each other, as well as networking with School Nurses from all over the country.

I’ll post more in the next week about the sessions I attended, and share some more thoughts and pics. Until then, have a great holiday weekend!

#NASN2014 Countdown has begun

I’m almost packed and ready to go! The caravan is hitting the road soon for San Antonio. It has been fun seeing everyone’s tweets from #NASN2014 so far. Tomorrow I am excited to attend the Pre-Con workshop for J&J Fellows. Can’t wait to see some of the Nurses we met last summer. (Hey New Jersey Nurses!)

I was very fortunate to be able to attend the J&J School Nurse Leadership Institute last summer with five other fantastic Klein ISD Nurses: Beth Pali, Yvonne Clarke, Brittany Llloyd, Linda Rosemeyer and Laurie Combe. I highly recommend this program to any School Nurse who wants to grow her leadership and presentation skills, and meet some wonderful mentors. Check out the link below to learn more about their program. Then assemble your team of School Nurses and apply!
